Dearhart Clan is a series of fast paced books that dabble in the world of paranormal and remain in the erotic pulse of what can only be classified as a primal fantasy. If it’s a typical romance you’re looking for you won’t find it in this series.
Eri Nelson writes in a darker world where heat and need are the forefront for a slipping existence. There is not time for all the tenderness love deserves but if you’re imprinted to another you are far beyond those mortal requirements.
Our author is driven by swift action packed intrigues that often leave you wanting more. As she writes each new book into the series the number of pages might increase but the action never lets you feel the increasing distance to the final page.
The Call From Within is Eri Nelson’s first look into this series. It is here that we meet Owen our Pack’s clan leader. He has been driven by what is expected of an alpha. Facts that were told through the decades all but look like fiction to him now. So he never dared to believe in fate and only let duty push him forth. Although now his resolves make no sense and it took little to no time at all in showing him through the lust he feels for another.
Kristen Still bares the imprinted mark to our handsome alpha. However he wasn’t the first to notice what she was and it’s that bedding of prior passions that control her new weakness. Yes, Owen is pushed by jealousy to possess what his four footed insight tells him is his.
A former distraction wanted more than heated moments with Kristen. In her he saw a stronger life force for his young and if Brinston Drake must he would take what he needs from her. He just did not foresee another finding her as well.
While the rest of Eri Nelson’s cast of characters find their selves caught up in furthering personal existences. Another by the name of Wash seeks to use their distractions as his gain. A rogue sent to track and update, Wash is tested by his hatred and desire for revenge. He’ll have it but not as quickly as he would like. But soon enough Owen will slip farther into his madness over a bitch in heat. Then Wash perhaps can use the heated vixen to distract both her and the alpha into their future demise.

My Review (book 1):
The Call From Within was quite a short book and I read it really quickly. I really liked the use of werewolves and shifters together, as most of the time these separate supernatural beings are simply thrown in together as being one in the same. Being short meant it was fast paced and there was plenty of naughty scenes and action to keep you hooked.
I must admit though that the kind of ‘imprinting’ mate thing was a bit annoying and did rob the reader of the romantic build-up between the two characters. Owen was literally in love with Kirsten from page one and part of why I like reading romance novels is to see how the relationship develops – and this is absent from the book.
From a writer’s perspective, it all felt a little rushed and perhaps would have been better to be slower and more thought out. By the end, I didn’t really feel that there was definite conclusion. The spicy scenes, however were some of the best I’ve read in a long time, so a more drawn-out plot and story line perhaps would have been the better hook to hang them on.
The front covers are very pretty, although the middle one is a bit boring for my taste, especially as the books themselves are erotic and fast paced.
Overall I’d give the first book of the series, 3 out of 5 stars. If you’re looking for a quick, heated paranormal romance, then do pick it up.
